Comments:

  1. MSVCRT.DLL version 6.00.???? is not compatible with Windows NT 3.50 due to missing imports. Use MSVCRT.DLL version 5.00.???? or earlier, or rename MSVCRT40.DLL to MSVCRT.DLL.
  2. Also read this Microsoft's Document: Q196831: List of the version history of Microsoft Foundation Classes DLLs
